Also, I take Cymbalta, Levothroid and Necon. I have never heard of any interactions with these but if anyone knows of any bad reactions from alcohol with these drugs, please let me know.
It's not a good idea to drink with prednisone as both prednisone and alcohol are very hard on your liver. While a few drinks are unlikely to cause any major damage, it's still a risk.
It's also unadvised to take Cymbalta and alcohol. Many people drink when taking SSRI's, but again, it's not a good idea.
Personally, I wouldn't risk it without first talking to your prescribing physician.
